So, how was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Was it turkey overload for you?
My sister made a 24lb turkey and my nephew smoked a 16lb bird.
Plus we had a 10lb ham. Can you believe we only had enough leftovers for lunch the next day.
What little was left after that went into a pot of chili.
We did not get to eat outside like we had hoped. The wind was blowing too much to enjoy the dinner. So we went to plan B and stretched the dining room table into the sitting room.
And this didn’t hold everyone! We had 7 kids at another table by the kitchen.
I made up these place cards using photoshop elements. Then punched some hole in the ends and wrapped some ribbon around the napkin and out through the holes.
My mom suggested we all use the place cards around our wine glasses so we could keep them all straight. She is so smart! It was a great idea. They even slipped nicely around the beer bottles.
We used some silver creamer and sugar bowls to make the mini arrangement.
I brought some pots of mums and we just clipped the flowers off and stuck them in some oasis.
They came out so cute.
That’s my Halloween pumpkin on the cabinet that I never carved.
So we put it to use to hold another potted mum.
We all had a great time. Lots of food, lots of wine, lots of laughs.
This last shot was taken by my daughter-in-law to be. Yep, #1 son is now engaged!
She is a photographer as well. So they have a lot in common.
The poor thing was bombarded with so many people this past weekend.
It was an introduction to the family like no other.
We're so happy to have her and her 6yr old son join our family.
Oh and I almost forgot.
I will be doing a giveaway this week so be sure to stop back by!
